Daniel Larson, Still in Prison Two Years After Federal Judge Rules He's Innocent

Thirteen years after Daniel Larson was sent to prison for a crime he was declared innocent of two years ago, his supporters have submitted over 100,000 signatures to California Attorney General Kamala Harris demanding his release. Larson was sentenced under California's Three Strikes law and given 25 years to life for allegedly possessing a six-inch knife. Two years ago a federal judge ruled that Larson's trial defense attorney was incompetent for not presenting evidence that proved his innocence. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
